Explore the vital role that snow plays in our global climate system and the availability of water resources through exciting interactives. Peek inside the snowpack to discover how it changes over time and the animals that make it their home. Get an up-close look at the crystals that make up different types of storms as you walk through a snowstorm. Learn about climate adaptation by balancing resources and making trade-offs.

From the wonder of snowflakes to building snowpeople to unique stories from the tundra, Snow: Tiny Crystals, Global Impact allows you to explore how this fundamental weather phenomenon impacts our lives—no matter where we live!


Snow: Tiny Crystals, Global Impact was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The exhibit was developed in collaboration with the University of Alaska Fairbanks and made possible by a National Science Foundation grant.
